Neo-retro shmup ‘Hyper Sentinel’ gets a release date

by Phil Wheat

After a year of demoing the game at various gaming events Huey Games have, finally, announced a release date for its arcade space shooter, Hyper Sentinel.

A pure arcade flip and scroll shooter, shot through with classic gameplay in a state-of-the-art modern game, Hyper Sentinel has been on show at various events across the UK going back to last year – in fact we managed to get a hands-on with the game back at October’s PlayExpo. And, as the press blurb states, not only does Hyper Sentinel repackage what makes people nostalgic and adds a smart, modern feel to create the ultimate Neo Retro experience.

With simple controls, fast-paced action and intuitive gameplay, Hyper Sentinel is the ultimate pick-up-and-play experience that lets players jump into the role of a lone ship defending the earth from marauding aliens, adding no extra waffle than that. Said game creator Jonathan Port of Four5Six Pixel:

Hyper Sentinel will take older gamers right back to their roots with an updated feel. Meanwhile the new generation’s thrill-seekers can satisfy their urge for action and epic boss battles without wading through plot.

Hyper Sentinel will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC from May 11th.
